Shopify Store Setup/Creation

Service Description

I will install and set up your theme; add/update your logo and branding; customize colors and fonts; customize liquid templates, if necessary; add scripts and install apps for functionality; set up product tags, variants and categories; add or import your products, time allowing; and do any necessary testing.

Shopify is a great e-commerce platform and the liquid templating system it uses is fast and efficient, but setting up a Shopify store can baffle even the most experienced 'e-commercer' the first, second or third time around!

This job includes up to 30 hours of set-up and development time.


Shopify's product import has been known to make grown men cry, but I can help you bring it to its knees! In addition to importing your products—time allowing—I can show you how to set up your product CSV file properly, allowing you to import products and add images, all in one quick step.

This can all be very time-consuming, so if the product import is a critical part of this project, please let me know beforehand so we can prioritize it all properly.

Briefing Details

I will need a high-resolution PNG, or vector AI or EPS of your logo (transparent background); your Shopify theme; access to your Shopify dashboard; the e-mail address you want to use for your store; a list of e-commerce sites, preferably Shopify sites, that you like and ones that you don't; your product info in a spreadsheet—Excel or CSV, and product images; marketing or stock images for sliders and other marketing sections (I can find good stock images for you if you don't have any, but image research takes up a lot of time); a list of pages and features you want to include on your site; and any other pertinent information I'll need to get your store set up exactly the way you want it.
